I5 760 and DDR3 1600 RAM Compatibility

Hello there!
I have a quick question about the Core i5 760 RAM Support.
I've ordered a i5 760 and G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB Kit(2Gx2) DDR3 1600 RAM (Intel 1156pin, AM3), but then I had a look at Microsoft's page for the i5 760 and it says-

Memory Specifications
Max Memory Size
(dependent on memory type) 16 GB
Memory Types DDR3-1066/1333
# of Memory Channels 2

It says it only supports 1066 and 1333 RAM. Does that mean I have to get different RAM? or can I still use the 1600 RAM but just at 1333 speeds?

    Hello and welcome to the forums
    As long as the motherboard supports DDR3 1600MHz RAM,you'll be fine.Because i5 760 will work fine with a 1600MHz RAM.
  2. I have a 750 and an Asus P7P55 mobo, and that runs 1600 OK after it has been selected in the BIOS
  3. So it should work with the GA-H55M-D2H? (buying the parts tomorrow and it's like nearly midnight here)
    It supports DDR3 1600MHz,so yes it should work fine.
